Massachusetts Federal Public Defenders: Please Defend Dzhokhar Tsarnaev With a Plea of Not Guilty

We believe Boston marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev deserves a fair trial in which he can make a full and frank defense against charges related to using a "weapon of mass destruction", and in which the evidence can be properly scrutinized before a court of law. Therefore, we strongly urge his defense team to enter a plea of not guilty. Regardless of whether our confidence in an acquittal is merited, a plea bargain would guarantee jail for life without chance of parole or benefit of appeal, and therefore, it would be against his best interests.
